    I think its pretty secure, I bank online all the time with no problems. I actually think that the bb has a more secure network compared to using a pc for instance. The bb prides itself in security and from what I've see the bb has had no major security issues

    Re: Security question

    RIM has done a lot to make sure that the BB is secure, particularly with respect to using a BES for corporate-type email and calendaring. When you are browing the Internet, you're not necessarily using a BES (if you have one) so the corporate security features don't really apply, but if you're doing things like online banking, you're still protected by SSL for the actual data stream. I personally wouldn't be concerned about doing online commerce from a Blackberry, and I haven't heard of any identify theft issues related to using a BB for those kinds of things.

    However, keep in mind that if you're storing passwords or any other sensitive information on your device, you want to make sure that it's encrypted and you probably want to have a password on your device to further protect it. (This is just common sense stuff for any handheld.)
